Sailors and Families!
Summer may be
over, but the sailing season lives on! Pleon is offering a fall sailing
program! We will be continuing into the fall season with a 420 program for high
school aged kids and coaching for Opti sailors. This program is not exclusively
for Pleon sailors. It is open to sailors
from ANYWHERE as long as they meet the prior experience requirements!
September 4th and ending October 13th Pleon will be
offering Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays for both groups, as well as a Sunday
only option. This is an amazing
opportunity for sailors to continue sailing into the fall with high level
coaching. We will also be holding a Team
Race Clinic for high school sailors Saturday and Sunday October 19-20.
you are planning on participating and have not registered please do so as soon as
possible. We need to know the set number of kids in order to properly allocate
coaching. We may have to turn last minute registrants away because of the coach
to sailor ratio! Contact Lisa Garry-Seymour if you
have questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
